I'm mostly responsible when I have to work the next morning. No more than 4-5 average ABV beers before a workday. When I don't have to work the next day I let loose. Right now my average ABV for the night is probably in the neighborhood of 10% and I've had at least eight drinks tonight. I'm enough that I've lost track by now.

So I guess the short answer is 'a lot.'

Typically, I have 1-2 pints of homebrew a night. Doesn't change (normally) between during the week or weekends. There are enough nights where I don't have any homebrew.

So, I don't always drink, but when I do it's 1-2 pints of homebrew.

You should never drink more than your pipeline can support.

+1 Unfortunately for my brain cells, my pipeline can support a pretty ridiculous amount of drinking.

I hung up my pro status years ago. Think I went two years without drinking more than maybe a bottle of wine. Those several years of hard drinking took a little toll that I'm seeing now. Uric Acid kidney stone former now (Usually formed by legumes, poultry, yeast and alcoholic beverages.) After sitting drugged up in a hospital for a couple weeks with those bad boys I really don't want a repeat. With uric acid stones they don't show up on xrays and only show on CT scans so they cannot use the sonic treatment and have to go in after them. So I take meds to help control it. I recently got into home brewing and upped to maybe a case a month between the two of us.

About 2 homebrews a night. Unless we go out. Last night we went see Joe Ely and probably had 2 homebrews and 3 blonde bombshells. My days of getting shiz faced are hopefully over. Hate the next day....LOL

My routine: first beer shortly after 5 pm, usually an IPA. Second one around 6 pm, usually an ESB or an Amber. Glass of wine with dinner around 7 pm. Nightcap beer around 11 pm - usually a nice warm chewy Stout.

Repeat daily.
Liver enzyme check yearly (they're still excellent, fwiw)...

Cheers!
